Also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, Kratom is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia. This 100 percent natural plant and herbal supplement was originally used safely in countries like Thailand and Malaysia for over half a millennium as a natural analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It was also traditionally used to boost energy and increase productivity in much the same way as coffee has been used in the western world.
When browsing through our Kratom products, customers will notice that many of the descriptions have similar terminology. Examples of common terms are the words “strain” and “vein” which indicate the habitat of each type of Kratom leaf and to a large extent, it’s effects. Alkaloid makeup is unique for each strain depending on which island or section in South East Asia the particular leaf is found. Many Kratom strains also have variations in vein color. For example, Green Borneo and Red Borneo – both very popular strains – grow on the island of Borneo. These leaves are of the same strain, but have different effects due to their difference in color.
Generally speaking, green veined Kratom strains produce a moderately energetic aroma while red veined Kratom strains tend to be “slower” or more calming and soothing. The white (Fast), green (Moderate) and red (Slow) distinctions are great indicators, although not accurate 100 percent of the time. Red Vein Thai and Red Bentuangie, for instance, are red veined strains that produce energetic aromas on par with many of the white or green strains. Similarly, a strain like White Sumatra will be more moderate than fast for most.
It’s worth noting that the effects of each strain can vary from person to person. Some customers may find that Red Sumatra (generally a slower strain) actually produces an energetic or social aroma for them; this won’t be true for most, but definitely can happen from time to time.
The main theme of this discussion is that there is a lot of variety in terms of effects, strains and colors. This is one of the best things about Kratom, and we believe you will find that each type is unique in some way. Some interesting points are that red strains usually grow in dry places while the whites and greens tend to grow near to water. Close proximity to the ocean is also said to result in richer alkaloid content and an especially fresh scent of the leaves.
We have diligently sought out the best suppliers and are happy to be able to provide the highest quality available on the market. Each strain is harvested at just the right time in order to ensure the alkaloid content has fully matured while not becoming stale. Each of our strains is also of premium quality, meaning they are ground and sifted various times to ensure maximum potency.
